By Max Habicht
Harvard University Press, 1931, 1109 pp.
The larger part of this volume is devoted to the texts of all international treaties for the pacific settlement of international disputes concluded in the first decade since the war, one hundred and thirty in all. For reference this collection is authoritative and standard. Its value is greatly enhanced by the second part of the volume, in which the author analyzes and compares the various types of agreement, discusses the different systems of settlement envisaged by the treaties, examines the reservations that have been made, and investigates the organization and working of the commissions and tribunals provided for. The volume also contains an extended classified bibliography of the subject. Done throughout in a scholarly, competent fashion, it should be indispensable to every student of international problems.
